Remember when Sat. Nite Duets debuted a few years ago and all anybody could do was compare them to Pavement? It seemed as apt a point of reference as any at the time, but it doesn't even begin to do justice to the hyped-up, jittery, shape-shifting Looney Tunes cartoon that they've evolved into. The Milwaukee ensemble's latest LP, Electric Manland, is their wildest, most curveball-dense recording y...

Though they've got nothing on genre standard bearers My Bloody Valentine in this regard, Milwaukee's go-to shoegaze band Brief Candles know a thing or two about taking their time. The group made fans wait a whole five years between their debut LP They Live We Sleep and its 2011 follow-up Fractured Days, so it's hard to complain about the relatively short wait time between that album and the group'...

When critics use the word to “drowsy” to describe music, they rarely mean it as a complement. It’s a loaded word, one that’s usually used to signify music that’s either boring or dispassionate.

It's fitting, then, that the group's inaugural full-length, the Shane Hochstetler-tracked Take Things As They Come, is paced like a live ...

Spin magazine has taken an active interest in the Milwaukee duo Vic and Gab. Earlier this summer, the website premiered a song from the guitar-pop group, then did the same for a music video. It's only fitting, then, that the site is the first to host the group's debut full-length, Love of Mine, a wonderfully poppy, lovesick summertime album. Stream it here....

This January, Milwaukee punk purists Bicentennial Rub released a quickie EP to sell at their tours around the region, a wildly invigorating throwback to the rowdiest '80s hardcore and noise-rock called Capital Chaos! Live! And sure enough, it offers a good representation of their live show, even if it wasn't actually recorded live—the band crudely dubbed some protest audio and crowd noises into ...

The music site Daytrotter posted an archived live show from Field Report today, a July 4 performance that site editor Sean Moeller mythologizes as "a suicide mission": Performing at the hallowed Codfish Hollow Barn in Maquoketa, Iowa, for the second Barn on the 4th event in three years, Christopher Porterfield and the rest of the Milwaukee-based band wrapped themselves into dress shirts, vests an...
